We all know that a.m. and p.m. are used to show time. But what do these abbreviations stand for and why do we use them? Before we get to our lesson and answer the question, it’s helpful to understand a bit about how time works. Since the earth is a sphere, it has 360 degrees. In our 24 hour clock each hour would be 15 degrees. The math is simple: 360 divided by 24 = 15. The imaginary longitude lines that go from the North to the South pole are called meridians when we talk about time. Each meridian has 15 degrees, or 1 hour of the 24 hours. Since the earth spins on its axis, but the sun does not, time changes as we go from morning (before noon meridian) to evening (after noon meridian).

Today’s grammar and usage lesson is on object case pronouns. Remember that a pronoun takes the place of a noun. Using object case pronouns avoids using repetitious nouns.

Now let’s read the mechanics lesson and study the examples.

Writers use pronouns to take the place of nouns. One type of pronoun is called an object case pronoun. The object case pronoun tells whom or what receives the action of the verb.

These are the object case pronouns: Singular—me, you, him, her, it, whom Plural—us, you, them, whom

Always place the me and us pronouns last in compound objects. Example: Please text Robin and us.

To check whether whom is correct, try substituting him in place of whom and rephrase, if necessary.

Example: Whom did Joan love? Rephrase: Did Joan love him?

Now circle or highlight what is right and revise what is wrong according to mechanics lesson.

Practice: Who did you expect to see at the concert? I know you looked for me and Amalia.
